Intersectionality: A Space for Theoretical and Practitioner Discussion

Friday 21st-Saturday 22nd November, 2014

Intersectionality is a way of visualising what the courst could not see…the combined discrimination experienced by being black and a woman
Kimberlé Crenshaw, 2014.

The Race in the Americas (RITA) group presents a two-day conference bringing together academics, activists and practitioners who share a concern for and interest in intersectionality. The event will include:

  • Academic presentations on the theme of intersectaionlity
  • Activist and practitioner presentations on how and why intersectionality features in their work
  • A roundatable discussion involving academics, activists and practitioners fleshing out a comparison between the intersectionality which is theorised in academia and the intersectionality which guides activists and practitioners in the everyday

Refreshments will be provided.
